Question about 2005 Subaru Outback

2 Answers

Don't know that I have a problem

I have 105,000 miles on my 2005 Subaru Outback 2.5i - time for maintenance, timing belt change is recommended at this point. What is the basis for determining a "recommended change"? The car runs great, will there be warning signs if a change is needed or will it just pop and a towing I will go?

Thanks!
Roz

Its supposed to be done so you dont have to wind up towing it,its a manufacturer recommendation that you do it at 100.000 so id get it done before you do end up towing it

Because thats where the parts have been tested and start to fail after that point. when a timing belt breaks no warning and if its happens at highway speeds the pistons could hit the valves and cost alot more

Do I need to replace timing belt on a 2001 Honda Accord that has 40,000 miles?


Most of the time you can wait until 100,000 miles to replace the timing belt. But there is no way to be sure, and maintenance recommendations vary. It is best to fall on the safe side. If you do not feel that you have the expertise to check the timing belt yourself, it is recommended that you have a professional take a look at it.

When should I have transmission fluids flushed/replaced on my 2001 Subaru Outback Legacy? I have 89,000 miles, and have done all the other recommended maintenance steps.


Every vehicle mfg. has a recommended about of miles to do this. It should be in your owners manual.
Every tech has a different answer for this as well, but the mileage it has now is about the time to do it.
I would have a reliable auto center, flush, change filter and re-fill.
They have the special equipment to do it right.
Get a few estimates first.
You can expect to spend about $ 125- $175.00.
Please let me know how it goes.
